When to stop pre-dissolving Prevacid Solutabs?
Just wondering... At what age were your refluxers when you started administering on the tongue, rather than pre-dissolving in water?

unless your child can understand you when you say "do NOT chew" i would always pre-dissolve. i to this day put the prevacid tab on a baby spoon (take and toss) and put a few drops of water over it.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
Zack gags on EVERYTHING, so I'll probably dissolve it as long as he's on it! Boy would just tossing it in his mouth be easier!!!

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
We stopped dissolving the tabs at 4 months and held it in her cheek. They seemed to work better that way. She's never tried to chew them, but will suck on them now at 15 months!

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
We started popping them in my daughter's cheek at about 5 months of age...SOOOO much easier than dissolving them :-)
